Pumpkin Time!

On October 23, we took Gavin to Tom's Farms for the second time to have a fun-filled family day and to select our Halloween pumpkins. After enjoying some good food at the sandwich shop, we headed over to the carousel. I thought Gavin would want to ride on a horse this time by himself -- but I was wrong! Once again, he panicked when I tried to put him on one of the stationary horses and clung to me like a little monkey. So, we ended up on a bench again just like last time.

From there, we headed over to the train and went for a short ride through the farm, which Gavin loved. We tried to get a family shot, but Gavin wasn't really cooperating.

From there, Matt and Gavin ventured into the petting zoo, but Gav wasn't so sure about some of the aggressive little animals. He seemed to enjoy watching them, but most of the time stayed close to Daddy. I was especially fond of the afro-haired ducks, which you can see in the background, I just think they are the cutest things!

Next, Gavin went for a pony ride. He was a little apprehensive at first, but I knew he'd warm up because he had enjoyed it a few months ago when we were here. And I was right -- it just took a few steps and Gavin realized that he really likes pony rides. He looked so cute on top of the little horse -- with his shades on, waving at the crowd -- he's such a cool little guy.

Finally, it was time to choose our pumpkins. We headed over to the pumpkin patch and began our search. Unfortunately, the first one Gavin selected was a bit too large...

Then he decided that he needed to take off his sunglasses so he could really get a good look at all the pumpkins.

Ah, yes, that one is a much more practical size.

With our pumpkins selected, it was time to head home, but not before Gavin got to play with the gravel! He loved the way it felt in his hands.

After all that time spent looking for just the right pumpkins, we didn't even end up carving them! We just ran out of time. Oh, the shame....
